- The concept of tafsir is very important in Islam. What is tafsir and why it is
- Abrogation (naskh) is an important concept in Qur’anic studies. Discuss the concept
of abrogation in the Qur’an.
- The Qur’an states the differences between men and women in the following verses:
“Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one
more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means.
Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband’s)
absence what God would have them guard” (4:34). What is your social assessment of
this Qur’anic statement? Explain.
- Although diverse, the Muslim view of marriage is well developed. Generally, all
Muslims are in agreement that a marriage is a contract between a man and a woman.
The Qur’an notes that: “A Muslim man may marry up to four wives, granted that he
treat them equally and provide for each of them” (4:3). Can there be a justifiable basis
for polygyny in society? Discuss.
- One of the most distinct features of the Qurʾan is that it repeatedly encourages its
readers to think and reflect. The Qur’an is critical of blind following and invites its
readers to avoid blindly adopting the beliefs society or family impose on them in its
attempt to liberate the mind from prejudices and narrow-mindedness. Thus, the
Qurʾan says: “Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the
alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding. Those
who remember Allah, standing, sitting, and reclining, and reflect on the creation of
the heavens and the earth, (and say): Our Lord! You have not created this in vain.
Glory be to You! Protect us from the torment of the fire” (3:190-191). Why it is
important to only adhere to the beliefs and values espoused by the Qur’an and avoid
blindly adopting the beliefs and values of the family or society? Examine.
- In Islamic tradition the Qur’an is a divine-to-human communication. In this
communication Allah speaks to humanity through Prophet Muhammad to whom the
Qur’an was revealed. Apparently, the Qur’an was not given to Prophet Muhammad in
the form of a complete book but the revelation came out of a complicated dialogue in
a discursive manner incrementally over a period of 23 years beginning on 22
December 609 CE when Prophet Muhammad was 40 years old and concluding in 632,
the year of his death. Why was the Qur’an revealed in a discursive manner
incrementally over a period of 23 years and not in the form of a complete book?
and norms in addition to identity. The culture and societal practices of language, tune and sports activities reinforces the legacy of post-colonialism similar to of the British rule over India even after gaining independence in 1974. systems of institutions like colleges and church buildings reinforces the legacy through faith and instilled ideals. The reinforcement of legacy via practices, language, song and sports can also appear to be mediocre in a globalized global device in which everything is out there via technology, however stays to be predominantly instilled inside colonized states. Trades and marketplace energy then again asserts itself to be another reinforcement of the legacy left at the back of via the connection of the North and South. This legacy of market energy translates to core-like activities and dominance over the periphery and semi-outer edge evident within the value added profiteering mechanisms that exploit low wages and raw materials from the latter nodes of the arena structures still gift nowadays. “aggressive accumulation produces choppy and combined improvement as it has a tendency to pay attention high price-brought manufacturing” (Pradella, 2014) Pradella argues that competitive accumulation or capital accumulation, with Marx’s primitive accumulation, however taken to a international scale consequences in ‘choppy and mixed improvement’ through high value-introduced production. The means in having manufacturing and manufacture in a periphery or semi-periphery country, then having value-added upon distribution is the unequal alternate due to center-like sports thru exploitation of the peripheries and the earnings spoiled by using the center. The argument that the exploitation ensues development for the peripheries and the South is yet any other unequal loss of life. The improvement in the South is virtually to keep or make efficient of the systems in region must like the British rule over India did spark most important infrastructure and improvement for the Indian subcontinent, but those tendencies may be accounted on the premise that it became important for the British to provide such infrastructure to herald this financial flourishment. Railways, roads, canals, bridges and even telegraph links were built and installed in India to transport cotton to ports in Bombay for shipments to the Empire. The British, “alone can set the East at the route of capitalist development,” this uneven and mixed improvement paints the narrative of colonized India that the developments and infrastructure had been really to further economic advantage with the aid of the British and the spillovers of capitalism via the British were enjoyed with the aid of the colonized. This colonial strength’s spillovers weren’t all tremendous, even after 60 years of profession, professional worker's were lacking and advanced posts held by way of Indians accounted for a mere ten percent of the workforce.
